Immeasurable equanimity

The wish for sentient beings beyond number to be free of attraction, repulsion and indifference toward others, or to be free of the eight worldly dharmas. Because it is developed in common by Hinayana and Mahayana practitioners, its audience does not include arhats. Its actual attainment requires its being held by one of the states of mental constancy (dhyana).

Tibetan: བཏང་སྙོམས་ཚད་མེད། btang-snyoms tshad-med
